    Got my first job today at an engineering firm as an intern.

    I'm pretty excited since I'm only 15 and they actually decided to hire me.

    The pay is pretty good for my age too - 12 dollars an hour :)

    Congratulations.

    1) Keep the job description around so you can use it later on your resume.
    2) Work hard and do a good job so you can be on their radar in the future (if you like the company)
    3) Save some of your money :D

    Excellent work young Jedi! :cool:

    Thank you!


    This all happened by chance too. I brought it up that I was looking for a job with a lady at my church, and she happened to work there and recommended me for the job.

    Congratulations!

    However, beware if one of your new colleagues sends you off on an errand to ask someone for a long stand or a big weight – more than likely it's a cunning prank. ;)

    Remember, arrive fashionably late every day, talk loudly on the phone, check out porn....er.....sports on the net all day, instantaction.com is your new best time killer, and overall just slack off and if anyone asks, the dude who doesn't speak English did it :D

    I suspect there's a great joke running through this thread, but I'm totally lost.

    congrats to the OP

    I finished an engineering apprenticeship around 20yrs ago now and actually finished as a grinding setter ( but now teach IT ) so i've heard those more times than i care to remember, another old favourite was " go get us a left handed screwdriver "

    I'm not sure yet. I'm only going to keep a part of it to spend. I want to start saving up for my first car, so I don't want to blow it all. :)

    I think I will buy myself one first. :D
    Thanks!

    Thanks!
